Medill Rallies for Imprisoned Alumna

April 24, 2009
Medill School of Journalism students and faculty held a rally April 23 for journalist and alumna Roxana Saberi who has been imprisoned in Iran, accused of espionage.

Medill Dean John Lavine and others called for release of the American-Iranian who earned her master's degree at Medill in 1999. Her graduate studies included time at Medill's news service in Washington.

The U.S. State Department has called the charges of espionage and Saberi's conviction baseless. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for her speedy release.
